Wide and relatively flat beach. About two miles from one end to the other. Easily accessible from the Cabot Trail. A nice place to stop for lunch or a short visit.

Well... it's popular for a reason! The landscape is beautiful, the village is cute, but it is touristic, expect a lots of people.

📍 Located on the northeastern shores of Cape Breton Island, Ingonish Beach is a must-visit destination for anyone seeking tranquility and breathtaking views. This sandy paradise is nestled within the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, where the rugged cliffs meet the endless expanse of the Atlantic Ocean.

Nice setting in the Park. Wooden boardwalk to avoid the rocks. Lots of Parking. Nice views. Smallish reaves break close to shore.

When the sand is visible it's gorgeous. Visit every year. Very close to amenities. The bonus is nearby Warren Lake.

I rugged and beautiful natural beach. But beware, the undertows are nothing to joke about! Had a lovely stroll on the sandy part and dipped our feet in the ocean, a quick yet stunning stop.

Inside the Highlands Park. Offers great parking. Beautiful views of the South Bay and Keltic Lodge. Water was warm enough to swim. Lots of beautiful beach stones. With the fall colours this was an awe inspiring moment

When we were in Nova Scotia this summer on holidays we drove the Cabot Trail I did not see any beaches with sand. Most are rocky in and out of the water. This was a real treat whether to lay on the beach or walk along the sand or take a dip in the ocean! It may not have been Hawaii but it was pretty darn good!! One of the highlights of Cape Breton!

great beach to reach by car with surprising "warm" water to linger in. Third best beach in NS in my book
